What Chris said.

Today was a hideous day. Low grade headache all day, and I'm sleeping like shit, moving into ketosis right before I break the fast.

Steve,
ACV and water is good when fasting, but tea is a god-send (at least for me). TJ's sells all kinds of flavors fairly cheap. Just bought chocolate flavored tea bags on Sun and I already went thru the entire box. Usually make a hot cup of tea with a splash of coconut milk and a tsp or two of liquid stevia. Works great to silence that sweet tooth, rehydrate, and distract your mind from food. Also keep reminding yourself that your 3/4 of the way over the bridge. Once you cross its all down hill from there. Keep trucking!

some would say the headache is a good sign of toxins being released into the bloodstream....the trick is flushing them out and not letting them get reabsorbed.....aka drink water, increase blood flow and sweat through the largest organ you have, the skin......your sweat should stink bad...again...that's a good thing....

ACV is a good blood ph balancer...and with the fast it goes to work in the blood stream and joints breaking down calcium and other buildups...hence it is recommended for anyone with osteoarthritis (joint specific, non autoimmune)

Chris,
Thanks.

I think I ate too much, too fast and now feel like crap. I'll see how this goes as time goes on.

This does get easier with time. I've found that now my body is weirdly able to handle when I "accidentally" eat an entire pizza from papa johns that I rebound back from it quicker than I did when I was eating throughout the day.

I forgot about the detox effect.

That and caffiene dep was probably most of it, since I've been dealing with every day since I started.

I was interested to see the comment on sleep as I haven't been sleeping well for the past couple of nights. I'm on the 5th day of fasting and I need to sleep better.

Good sleep continues to evade me... I wake up several times at night and can't seem to figure it out. I eliminated cold showers in the PM and thought that would help but I'm waking up. Don't drink liquids after a certain time so I don't have to go to the bathroom when I wake up so thats not the issue. And I have my windows covered so its completely dark..

Anyone have any good sleep tips??

After exhausting pretty much every possibility I'm convinced that my problem is SAD.. not getting enough sunlight its hard to straighten out my sleep pattern hormones. I haven't been able to catch a day of sunlight since the fall! Come on spring weather lets get on with it already..
